Use Shades to Protect Drapery from the Sun

Protect Drapery from the SunJust like the bright Baltimore sun will burn your skin when you’re outside, it can also damage items like drapery and furniture inside your home. Anything that receives direct sunlight through your windows is susceptible to damaging UV rays from the sun. Over time, these rays will dull the colors of your drapes, furniture, flooring and other design elements inside your home. To protect the investment you’ve made in your interior design, consider window treatments that truly block the sun’s dangerous UV rays. When style is just as important as protection, look to high-quality shades from Hunter Douglas.Continue Reading

Latest Technology in Window Treatment Motorization and Automation

Platinum Motrorization Systems from Hunter DouglasThere’s never been a better time than for home automation! From lights and security systems to your blinds and drapery, the technology of automation brings ease and convenience to your life. At Windo VanGo, we specialize in a wide range of automation and motorization options, ranging from hard-wired to battery operated solutions. Many varieties of blinds, shades, and drapery can be motorized. Often, we can add motorization kits to your existing window coverings.

Benefits of Motorizing Your Window Treatments

Here are just a few benefits to window treatment automation:

Increased safety. Even though much improvement has been made to window treatment cord systems over the years, they can still pose a danger to kids and pets. Motorization removes cords completely, vastly improving the child and pet safety of your window treatments.

Ultimate convenience. Some blinds and shades are very large, or in difficult to reach places such as up in skylights or behind bathtubs. Even if window treatments are within reach, motorization features allow you to automatically adjust your shades and blinds based on the time of day, or even the amount of sun shining through the window.

Energy efficiency. Timers and advanced automation systems can help you save energy by reducing your heating and cooling costs. The right shades can help you save up 50% on energy costs.Continue Reading
